default. august 2 is the big day and president obama is urging compromise in congress. he spoke to the nation last night and he criticized the republicans. >> a significant number of republicans in congress are insisting on a different approach, a cuts only approach, an approach that doesn't ask the wealthiest americans or biggest corporations to contribute anything at all. >> but gop leaders say the president is the one who is refusing to budge. >> the president wanted a plank check six months ago. and he wants a blank check today. this is just not going to happen. >> republicans are pushing to raise the debt limit enough to last for the rest of the year and then a joint committee would tackle a second increase and more spending cuts but mr. obama says he will veto any plans to raise the debt ceiling if it comes in two waves. he supports a plan by majority leader harry reid to raise the limit to 2012. >>> breaking news out of morocco. a state news agency says a c- 130 plane has crashed in a mountainous area there. there are reports that 26 people have been killed, four injured.

to 19th avenue is completely shut down. maybe you can see cars going by okay so there are no big backups with this right now and you can continue using northbound 280 to head up into san francisco towards 101. it's that 19th avenue off-ramp that's flared off. it came in as a car versus pedestrian earlier. earlier a chp on scene told us this was a possible crime scene but right now it sounds like it was a pedestrian in the road and that's what happened. that's what caused this fatal accident. they gave us an initial opening time of 5 a.m. for when they could hopefully get that off-ramp open but as you can see, it's still closed. i talk to a chp officer a short time ago and they hope to open it any minute. so hopefully this won't be a major impact or cause major problems for the morning commute. right now, as your alternate, use junipero serra avenue or san jose avenue off-ramps as your alternates to get from daly city into san francisco. a lot of slick surfaces as gianna has been mentioning this morning. it is very drizzly out this morning so be extra careful for your morning drive. again
